Tonight: Health Effects Discussion

Don't forget: Tonight- January 26 – Discussion on the Health Effects of Compressor Stations

7 pm – Thomas Crane Public Library (Quincy Center)

Details: Dr. Curt Nordgaard will lead a discussion on the potential health effects of the proposed compressor station. Co-sponsored by QCAN and FRRACS.

Opposition by residents and office-holders to the proposed Fore River compressor station stems largely from the idea that emissions from the facility would harm the health of Quincy and Weymouth residents.

Research on the Spectra proposal by Nordgaard, who also has a master’s in biology, has taken him deep into the scientific literature on health effects of compounds such as benzene, formaldehyde, and acrolein, three of many pollutants that will be emitted by the compressor station, according to Spectra’s application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
